2 stars This album, along with the following one, were lent to me by a French teacher in Grade 8. I listened the the first track, and wasn't amazed. After a few months, I began to listen to all my songs without a play count on iTunes, and discovered "Si on avait Besoin D'une 5ieme Saison", namely the track "Histoires Sans Paroles". I was absolutely blown away. After listening and burning a copy of that album, I remembered I also had their debut album. It wasn't quite as moving or innovative as "Saison", but I still loved it. It was more folkier than prog, but very enjoyable and fun. The electric principles of music from this era were hardly used on this album, which was very fresh and beautiful. Some electric piano and bass were used, but no electric guitars or keyboards are used. (The bass is also very nice on this album, especially the final track of the album.) Unfortunately, this album is very tedious and drags on with its acoustic guitar and often wordless chanting, and the atmosphere and feel is completely static throughout the album, with no sudden surprises or musical novelties.
